'cause as these things get bigger and bigger, the strength doesn't keep up with the weight, so you got to compensate and make extra thick legs. we are really designed for the environment which we live, gang. that's the message. you know, you see the king kong movies? king kong all scaled up like that? no way. king kong scaled up in proportion-- wouldn't be able to stand up. he'd be crushed by his own weight. even whales have a hard time. whales are just too darn big. and so whales--do you know what happens to a whale when he gets beached?

[roaring] well, then we have to go through the steps again. but after that, he has to choose another place to play. you may have noticed that i didn't include any timeouts as one of my intervention steps, and i'll tell you why. although i believe timeout is certainly an improvement over spanking, yelling, or worst yet, shaking a child, it still has its drawbacks. what do you think concerns me most about it? note that when this teacher says timeout, she does not send the child off to sit by himself. instead, she keeps him with her. woman: you won
